This birthday cake was probably one of my favorites to make – it was for a very special little girl.
Two layers (vanilla and chocolate), covered in buttercream and a full size Olivia cut from fondant, all ready for the party.
She is surrounded by polka dots, stripes and she even has the sweetest fondant bows on her ears.
And of course, the first birthday smash cake, in matching colors and accents.
Van’s first birthday fell on a momentous weekend: the Daytona 500.
Not only is that one of the premier Nascar races, but Van was born exactly 8 years after his parents met at that very race.
It’s not surprising that his first birthday theme was the checkered flag.
Of course, the vanilla smash cake matched…
And there were some cupcakes with red papers and black fondant stars atop swirls of buttercream.
We hope this first birthday party was special for Van and his family!
I love themed parties, and I was so excited to make the cake for little Chloe’s very first birthday party.
In a ladybug theme of course.
There was a big cake.
And a smash cake.
And they couldn’t be cuter.
If you know anything about me, you know that I would only make a Gators cake if it really meant something to someone else.
Because I’m all about the Hurricanes, baby.
But my friend wanted something special for her husband’s birthday party. And he’s a Gators fan. So I created this football field cake with a fondant Gators logo for the event.
Two layers of devil’s food cake with a white chocolate filling, covered in smooth vanilla buttercream.
A patriotic dessert for a special celebration.
This cake was carved in the shape of the United States out of two layers of vanilla cake, one red and one blue. It was frosted in vanilla buttercream and decorated with patriotic slogans.
Chocolate cupcakes designed to complement the cake.
This weekend, I provided a cutting cake and mini cupcakes for a gorgeous wedding at the Garden Club.
The room was absolutely fantastic – deep purple orchids and candles, and gorgeous accents in orange and teal and green, all based around the vivid hues of peacocks.
Over 150 mini cupcakes in vanilla, chocolate and banana rum surround the cake stand.
The lights from the candles in the background.
The tail of the cake topper is absolutely beautiful.
One more close up.
Congratulations to M and her new husband! Wishing you both every happiness!
We celebrated Memorial Day with some great friends, and I was in charge of dessert.
My favorite thing to be in charge of, really.
I decided to play around with a beach theme, and created a delicious peach brandy cake with vanilla custard and fresh blueberry filling.
And then the fun began. Check out these sweet teddy grahams sunbathers and swimmers.
We have some itty bitty divers in itty bitty wetsuits…
Just splashing around…
And don’t forget Speedo Bear. He’s my favorite.
A yummy way to celebrate.
And probably one of my favorites to make.
I was so delighted to be invited to our dear friend K’s baby shower. She and her husband D will be expecting Baby F in just a few short months, and we are over the moon for them.
I was also thrilled to be called upon to make her shower cake. Two tiers, one chocolate, one vanilla, studded with butterdream polka dots and a replica of the fishies from Baby F’s super adorable bedding.
Congratulations, again, to two wonderful friends!
I really love making sweets for friends, and so I was more than delighted that B & M asked me to create a smash cake for their son’s first birthday party.
They had a nautical theme, and B requested the colors of light blue and red, with stripes. I found some inspiration pictures and put together this 8″ round of chocolate and vanilla layers with buttercream and fondant.
On display at the party, complete with anchor, another special request.
C, the birthday boy, loved it! Happy first birthday, buddy!
Happy birthday, Jack!
Jack’s Mommy and Daddy wanted a very special Surf Monkey birthday party for his special day. They asked me to do a surfboard vanilla cake in yellow and blue for Jack’s smash cake and I was happy to oblige.
It made a huge splash with Jack. He was more than happy to dig right in.
Mom & Dad also ordered some banana rum cupcakes with buttercream frosting to celebrate the actual birthday (tomorrow). I jazzed them up with yellow frosting swirls and a blue fondant dot, in keeping with the party theme.
We hope Jack had a fantastic day!
